"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

5 C. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tsp. baking powder
4 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 C. Crisco shortening
1 pkg. dry yeast
3 T. warm water
2 C. buttermilk

Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. Sift all dry
ingredients into bowl. Cut in shortening. (Do this with your hands until it is the texture of cornmeal. Add yeast and buttermilk and knead until round. Roll out with rolling pin and cut with biscuit cutter. Put biscuits on cookie sheet and let them rise for 1/2 hour before baking. Bake about 12-15 minutes until brown.

(*Can take a stick of butter and run it over the biscuits before baking. It will make them more golden brown.)
